Sushant Singh's sister Meetu Singh, on Thursday, released  a statement and warned against funds being raised in the late actor's name. In a series of tweets, she said that it has come to the family's notice that people are taking advantage of the situation and called it an 'inhuman act'.

"Unfortunately, it has come to our notice that some people are taking advantage of this situation for their own personal benefits which is an unexplainably inhuman act. All these people are required to refrain themselves from doing so," she tweeted.

She further said: "We would also like to bring this to everyone’s notice that the family has not authorised anyone to raise donations or funds in the name of SSR and no one has the consent to make anything about or related to SSR, be it a movie, a book or a merchandise.”

She added that the family did not want to make profits out of a tragedy. She tweeted: "The family is not fond of turning a devastating tragedy into a profit and we will not allow anyone to do so. #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput #SSRians #SushantSinghRajput”

Sushant was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14 last year. Ahead of the first death anniversary, the probe into case seems to have picked up pace again, with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) aresting his former flatmate Siddharth Pithani in a drug case linked to his death. His bodyguard and house helps have also been repeatedly summoned.
